TestimonialMonkey.com – Get Customer Testimonials

  • August 31, 2011

TestimonialMonkey.comSimplifying the way in which companies get testimonials from their customers is the objective of this new service. TestimonialMonkey.com enables business owners to send requests to all the people they have ever conducted transactions with, and the idea is that once these have materialized they will be displayed on the unique URL each company gets when signing up for the service. And testimonials can also be featured on social sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as it is only logical – that’s where reputations are truly made and maintained nowadays.

Of course, companies can publicly respond to all the comments which are made, and show everybody that they’re always listening, and that their customers are actually their number one concern.

There are five plans to choose from: “Lite”, “Essential”, “Professional”, “eCommerce” and “Enterprise”. Each can handle a larger number of monthly requests and responses. All plans can be tried at no cost for 30 days.

Dialogfeed.eu – Displaying Your Best Feedback Only

  • September 18, 2010

Dialogfeed.euDialogfeed is a new service that will let you bring the best testimonials featured on your different social profile right into your website. The idea is that you will be able to gather and highlight the best testimonials only, and display them as an indicator of the reputability of your company and the high quality of the services you can render.

Technically, this is accomplished in the simplest way you can imagine: by inserting a widget on your website. This is done at no cost (Dialogfeed is a free application from start to finish), and once the widget has been installed then it will begin displaying these testimonials that you have handpicked in order to win new converts and brand advocates.

For the time being, only messages that have been posted on Facebook and on Twitter can be imported. Not that this is something negative – these two services are the definitive top of the social totem. But the addition of some new services should not be obviated when the site is updated next.

PlusPanda.com – Adding Testimonials To Your Website

  • March 24, 2010

PlusPanda.comCustomer testimonials are a necessary part of any online shop. It is not that everybody reads them.

Rather, it is more a matter of showing that you have nothing to hide. An ecommerce site that has no testimonials is like a resume that has no personal references. It looks incredibly suspicious.

And if you already recognize the importance of having a space in your site where the opinion of your customers is captured down for all to read, but don’t know how to implement it then this service will work like wonder. Named PlusPanda, it will let you choose a layout and have a box collecting feedback displayed in your site. This is added by merely cutting and pasting a string of code.

Note that if you already have some testimonials that you would like to have featured you can import them easily. And if you don’t have none you can remedy the situation very quickly using the provided testimonial collection form. When you are done, these will be added to your site for all to see and weigh up.

Cuesense.com – Turn Opinions & Emotions Into Slideshows

  • February 8, 2010

Cuesense.comCuesense is a service that will let anybody scour both Twitter and the Blogosphere in pursuit of opinions or testimonials that relate that the service he or she provides. These can then be turned into a slideshow, and embedded on the site or blog so as to show potential customers where it’s at.

Each presentation comes complete with photos and a soundtrack that the one assembling it (EG, you) deems as suitable. Something like “We Are The Champions” or “Standing On Top Of The World” should do the trick.

Although I mentioned Twitter and blogs in the first paragraph, the system actually imports opinions and feelings from other sources like Friendfeed and news feeds on the whole. And when it comes to Twitter, Cuesense also looks at the statuses of users in order to assess the sentiment on the web. In each and every case, 11 different emotional dimensions are recognized, and these cover the gamut of human emotions from top to bottom. It is fair to say, then, that the impact of each and every site or product will be transposed accurately enough by this system.

Propadoo.com – Centralizing Referrals & Testimonials

  • February 3, 2010

Propadoo.comA very interesting site, Propadoo approaches testimonials in a different way by bringing aspects that we associate with social services like Twitter and Facebook together. That is, it is a service whereby testimonials and referrals are socialized by the use of elements such as profiles and pictures that let everybody know exactly who is who.

And the Twitter influence is felt in the way that testimonials are provided – they are streamed on your the in a manner not that dissimilar to how tweets are displayed on the public timeline of Twitter.

The way the system works involves creating links to prompt people to prop you. These are placed not only on your site or blog but also on e-mails, and the resulting feedback will be automatically collated for you to weigh up.

In addition to being employed to generate higher sales, a system such as this one lends itself to complementing colleagues and giving recognition to city workers by recognizing what they have done for you.

This system is free both for companies and individuals. All that is required is creating an account beforehand, and that is done in less than 30 seconds.

MyFaceliftStory.com – Learn If It Really Works

  • May 28, 2008

MyFaceliftStory.comPart of the marketing tactics of beauty products and treatments rely heavily on miracle and drama: a crooked granny enters the operation room and one shot later out walks Ursula Andrews in her white bikini. Sensible adults should be able to discern that there is a tiny bit of exaggeration, and as much lies, in the beauty treatment ad business.

If you are considering surgery, a face lift or any other form of radical move to shake some years off, you are strongly advised to thoroughly research your options before showing up to your doctor’s office, and MyFaceliftStory.com can help you get a part of that job done: the site was built with the intention to support and tell the truth about Lifestyle Lift, a particularly light cosmetic surgery procedure that’s very useful to give the face a look of youngness without the dangers of full anesthesia or a major operation. Other than testimonials by site visitors, users will be able to read about the procedure in itself, see lots of before/after pictures of men and women, and use the links to other medical sites and associations to go on reading about the Lifestyle Facelift.

Onnetworks.com – Pro video series on demand

  • November 25, 2007

Onnetworks.comFeaturing a list of different series, at this video portal you will be able to find any original content you might be after: whether you are into sports & gaming, arts & culture, travel, food & drink or comedy, you are bound to find something you like here. You can watch separate episodes, much in the same way that you can do in YouTube, but of course you cannot upload or download any of the stuff.

The site will run on average speed internet connections, and the definition is quite perfect, even in the full-screen mode, so forget the foggy screens. Episodes are rather short (5-10 minutes on average), and consist mainly of talking heads and interviews, but they are neatly produced and the vistas are interesting, so in any case it seems like something good to do while the writers are on strike.
